Team USA- NCHBC
Sign Up & Registration Link Below info…
Each year HomeSchool Basketball Nationals in Springfield, MO features well over 300 Team USA sign ups!
Over the years Team USA has been expanded to Basketball Regionals & Volleyball Nationals.
Team USA serves many purposes.
1) Whole team is not attending
2) Do not have a team
3) Dual Rostering*
*This usually happens when a player is “playing up” due to their programs make up. In this case this happens when team they are not receiving a lot of playing time on the current team they are on. For these situations we always advise asking your team coach permission before signing up to dual roster.
Team USA is made up of Home School players from around the country. In many situations Team USA allows players to participate in an NCHC Post Season Event that they would not otherwise be able to. Team USA was birthed in the early 1990’s in San Antonio at the 1st HomeSchool Basketball National Tournament.
In Team USA you can request to play with your friends or teammates. We have seen many instances were 3-5 players from a team that played together all year and a coach want to play at an NCHC Post Season Event but don’t have enough to field a full team, Team USA is a great opportunity for these situations and others.

3. Within 2 hours the Head Coach or Program Director must notify NCHBC headquarters by emailing email@example.com about the ejection within two hours.

Seeding Forms/Game Deadline: For a game to count for seeding to an NCHBC Event it must be played before the seeding deadline (2020 Districts January 12th & 2020 Regionals/Nationals January 30th.)

NCHC Dual Roster Policy: Players may play on multiple different age groups within a program. They are permitted to play on in any age group they qualify for. Players may only play on one team per age group.As always it is the NCHC policy that teams entering our tournaments have enough primary players to compete, our staff will look at all requests to accommodate dualrostering, however, each player must know who their primary team and each team must have enough primary players to begin each game of the tournament. Ultimately each team must be prepared for conflicts that our staff is unable to accommodate.
NCHBC Proof of Age Requirement– Each program must be able (in the event of an age challenge) to provide the NCHBC proof of age via birth certificate, for each player. Over the course of 25+ years each age challenge has been handled this way. Worthy of note, no age challenge has been successful. We accept electronic and physical copies, whichever is more convenient for the team/player to provide in the event of the challenge.
